I'm not a very social person being a strong introvert. I'm very shy which I've worked hard to overcome but still in social settings such as parties I'm the wall flower. Or I talk to the dog.
And I have to be social this weekend. My nephew is getting married Saturday.
People who can jump into social situations and chat people up amaze me. How do they do that. And I know that extroverts get energy from such situations where introverts get drained by such situations. And I'm definitely drained.
That was one reason I didn't fit in well in the corporate world was the job I had required me to be social. And it was a struggle every time. Now about the only time I have to be social is at book signings. But they exhaust me.
How do you handle social situations? Jump right in or talk to the plants? Let me know in the comments below.
